For those of you who don't know Patricia Randolf, she is a tireless advocate for rights for all our relations...she has a column in a Wisconsin paper that is so very well worth the read and follow. I hope each of you welcomes her as a sister to this wonderful organization. She touches life with a voice for those who have no human voice nor a vote as to what happens to them. Hope each of you has had a good day and if it has been a bit rough, always remember the great gift you get to see when you… Continue

With the winds of Irene affecting so many, I would like to share an upside of the Wind Spirits if I may....
Wind Spirits of Our Soul
(lessons from Bishop and Lame Coyote)
Set your face to western winds
Rushing from tall mountain peaks
Strong and furious
Soft and gentle
Singers of a peace
Seldom found with humans
Movement of a spirit
Refreshing the soul
Speakers of no lies
Sharing only… Continue

I found this poem and want to share it. It was written by Eleanor Farjeon.
Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair,
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge,
Open drawer, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do,
Fitted in a cardboard box, in a cupboard with your frocks
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.

- What a funny squirrel! I showed Marianne the picture on a magazine. Continue
- Oh, don´t talk about squirrels… she sighed.
- Our neighbor isn´t talking to us.
- What? Again? What this time? Something to do with squirrels?
- Oh yes.
- Let´s hear it!
- All right. The other day we were a bit tired and had a nap after I had done the laundry, and before it was time to start preparing dinner. Well - I was just about to fall asleep when…

Osda Sunalei (good morning) All,
I would like to share something I wrote some years ago to start your New day with you if I may
Softly, like the gentle breath of Creator
who whispers upon Wind Spirits
Gently, as the soft petal of a violet
that caresses an infant’s cheek
Refreshing as the cooling mist
from a clear running waterfall
With compassion it begins to heal
those who are in pain

Drums pound as gourd rattles shake in rhythm
with the joyous heart of Earth Mother
Spirits of Earth and Sky loudly rejoice
at the birthing of new Wolf pups
Tiny new lives beginning in innocence
their eyes closed to what might be
Gently, as the caress of a Butterfly
Wind Spirits stroke their fur
Sleeping pups, dreaming dreams
of ancestors roaming free
Prairies, mountains, valleys, and streams
were once a home… Continue

Once, our home was from horizon to horizon in this… Continue
